Early Morning Ramblings of a Twenty-Something Girl

A dream of a 1920s quasi-candid shot of
Debby Harry, mingling graciously among a grandiose Studio 54 scene.

Spray the lens of my life with hairspray, too!
Sorry, how petty I am.

Strangling a waist and shoulders with wires
and plastic planks that chew up my heel bones.
Sorry! It is getting late.

Not delicate in the least I am,
shielding a plump silhouette
like a ripe, fuzzy, plump plum?
No. I am not a juicy bite. A tart and gooey bite I am.

Packaged by flows of scratchy, crotch-yanking fabrics I am.
Please do not unwrap me.
Sorry. I am.
